Henry Clay has struggled this season, getting off to an 0-3 start, but a young player is emerging for the Blue Devils, sophomore Davion Jackson.

Henry Clay fell to 3-A power Belfry this weekend and despite the defeat, sophomore Davion Jackson made his presence known in a big way.

Jackson rushed for 174 yards on only eight carries and three scores.

"I feel good about it, but I'm not worried about my performance as much as my team's," said Jackson.

Over the rest of the season, Jackson will have an opportunity to keep becoming a better player and help his team to win some games, like Henry Clay traditionally does. He's still doing whatever he can to improve his skills.

"My best skill is my speed (4.5 at last check)," said Jackson. "I'm trying to get bigger. I think the speed is there, but there are some big players out there and nothing would be better than to get bigger," he continued.

Jackson describes himself as a player who plays with heart and passion. And Over the rest of the season he plans to use those traits to help his team get better as well as himself.

"I'm looking forward to getting all my skills better and our team getting better," he said. "We need to work harder and play harder," he continued.

As a sophomore, it's still early in the process for him, but Jackson has interest in two schools at this point.

"Ohio State is my favorite. I would love to go there, but if not, I would go to Kentucky. It's right here at home," he finished.
